of the last year. those talks reportedly led by two members of the obama administration. apparently the discussions were kept hidden from america's closest allies including israel. julie pace, one of the reporters who worked on that story for the associated press spoke to anchor chris wallace on "knox news sunday" earlier this sunday about the importance of those meetings. >> those are the meetings that really laid the groundwork for this agreement that we saw last night. it was in these meetings that some of the details were actually discussed between the u.s. and iran and that's the deal that actually was then brought to the p-5 talks and a lot of the allies were surprised that this deal came together a little more quickly than they expected and that's in large part because the meetings happened. >> the ap says it was tipped off about those discussions shortly after the first meeting back in march. >> historic mistake. that's what israel's prime minister benjamin netanyahu is calling this nuclear deal with iran. while also saying that his country is not at all bound by the agreeme

there for instance. but the obama administration, for israel this is an existential issue. for obama it is a political annoyance. in fact, i truly believe in my heart that the obama administration regards as well as a strategic -- what were can i best use? a strategic liability and as a political albatross because they have to pander. israel, the outpost of outer civilization in the middle east amid a sea of barbarism. obama is turning away from as well for political points and embracing here on. it is bad for america and israel and the world. it is great for the iranian government. >> that is a good place to leave it. thank you so much for joining us. thank you. all right. now to the weekend box office. torching the competition. raking in $161 million. and at last, harry potter movie. second place went to disney. 141 million. the best man holiday came in first for 12 and half million dollars. coming up next, cancellations, security breaches, rising rates is just another day of bad news for the president's signature of keogg. our next guest says this is only the beginning of the mise

example that the obama administration faced. countries had indicated they wanted to resume purposes of iranian oil at higher levels. and under the u.s. sanctions legislation, the white house would have had two choices. one, impose sanctions on the likes of china, india, and south korea for violating our sanctions. or two, giving additional waivers to those countries which would have been very difficult politically. so in a way, what iran has done is break through the clutter and allowed itself to reestablish its commercial bona feedies with some of the customers. >> talk about the clicker. let's take a look at what iran is not doing, while everyone is touting what they are supposedly doing. the deal does not dismantle one thing. it doesn't destroy any nuclear facilities. it doesn't remove any of the enriched uranium. doesn't stop them from enriching the uranium. doesn't stop a breakout capacity. doesn't provide for more intrusive u.n. inspections, the most at the iaea wants. look, some experts say they could possibly have a bomb in 33 days if they want and it doesn't send any equipm
relatively little traction with the bush administration, and began slowly with the obama administration, but it did become a central part of the administration policy from year one or year two of the obama administration. you can argue about whether it vigorously as it might have been, but that was something which was a very clear asked by the u.k. to the u.s. to adopt a different approach. again, i think we got there in the and. the arms trade treaty you mentioned, that was something where we had initially quite a negative reaction to where i think not just british lobbying others brought the united states rounded to the , andion which was adopted the president, and on climate change, i think you need to look at this through quite a complicated prism. with the bush administration, there was no way through in our ideas metng at the federal level, so we had to concentrate on a very different strategy of trying to get action an agreement at the local and state level, and there was that which was continuing in my time at the end of the bush and we had them with florida and virginia and oth

difficult questions are postponed until the final stage of the negotiations and the obama administration already has made major concessions that will reduce the prospect for getting an acceptable and permanent arrangement. the deal is a flawed agreement to risk reducing the sanctions, pressure on iran over the next six months in return for the easily reversible pledges some of which air on has already given but has reneged on. it requires them to curb some but not all of its activities in return for what the administration estimates is about six to $7 billion of sanctions relief over the next six months. the danger is easing the sanctions as a part of an interim deal will diminish the pressure on iran, underlined the u.s. leverage and reduce the chance of getting a good agreement at the end. significantly, iran is not required to comply with the un security council resolutions that called for the halt in the uranium enrichment and that essentially rewards iran for bad behavior. instead, air on this continuing the fight present levels for its nuclear power reactor despite the fact that ru

with the united states. states has to steer between two parameters, which the obama administration is trying to do. on the one hand, not let china dominate the south and east china seas because china's geographic centrality and demographic and economic emerging power would make them too dominant in the region, more dangerous in the region than the u.s. has been over the past few decades. at the same time, it cannot let china dominate, we cannot get into a war or into a real fracas with china because of the philippine -- vietnamese and filipino nationalism. equity,too much trade, global warming, this that and the other, to allow any of this to be threatened by local nationalism. god that werrow have to ride through. looking long-term, we have to accommodate chinese military power to an extent. we will not have the pacific base in an american lake, and american naval lake, the way it was following world war ii. it will be more of a nuanced multi-polar order, but the u.s. needs to be the first among equals. now i will pivot to europe. i think europe is underrated. very much underrated. it as the fisc
